I came back from BMW service hell today...they want $800 to fix the problems mentioned above...as well as replace the belts to fix a sqeaking problem that isn't being cause by the belts...so yeah..it's been that kind of day.
I need to know if these are things I can possibly do myself (I realize this is pretty objective based a million things). But any help here would be awesome. These are the things I need to do:
1. The drivers side door lock is not working with my key remote...BMW Diagnosis--- A new Drivers side Door Lock Actuator
**Does anyone have any experience with this? If you do, please share.
2. AC is blowing only on high, and something sounds like it is still "blowing" behind the dash when AC/Heat is off...BMW Diagnosis---one page said "A/C Fan Resistor", another said "Final Stage Unit for HVAC System"
**Are these the same thing? Is it possible for the average do-it-your-selfer to replace this? Apparently you have to take apart the dash to get to it...
Thanks so much fellas for any experience here...
